Lack of fruit may be down to the weather. Our trees were in blossom just when it turned cold and windy so there were very few pollinating insects out and about. I tried the feather duster trick and do have some fruit on pears, apples and cherries. Keep an eye on the yellow spots as they could turn into a raised blister. If they do you should remove them before they fall burn or bin them don't compost them.
